"I would like you to know how much I enjoyed your books. I admire your dog rescue abilities. I don't rescue dogs, but I adopt cats that have been declawed."

Margaret C. June 17, 2019

"I just finished the first 6 books in your go cup series, and as a fellow Louisianan, I have to say I loved reading about the familiar places and customs of our fair city. I grew up near Hammond but lived in New Orleans for some time before moving to Colorado and ending up in Minneapolis with my rescue pup. I appreciate your dedication to rescues in real and literary life. 
Your books made me nostalgic (and more than a little hungry for some king cake 😁). I look forward to future installments of the series."

Amazon Reviewer

“Rescued By a Kiss is a witty romp through all things New Orleans, from Mardi Gras to king cakes, the French Quarter and beyond.  Grab a coffee and spend an afternoon with Brandy Alexander as she encounters a wacky cast of characters found only in New Orleans.”

“Rescued by A Kiss by Colleen Mooney was a very enjoyable read. I couldn’t put it down. It was light-hearted and yet suspenseful. I loved the New Orleans culture and landmarks that set the stage for this really fun book. The characters were very real, especially Brandy who epitomizes the homegrown New Orleanian. And on top of it all, it included my favorite breed of dog, the miniature schnauzer! I can’t wait for the next book in the Go-Cup Series!”
